The light‐induced polymerization process of bisphenol F diglycidyl ether (BFDGE), 5,5′‐dicarboxylic‐7,7′‐dioxo‐2,2′‐spirodi(benzotetrahydrofuran) (DCSBL) and polytetrahydrofuran (pTHF‐250) was studied. 4‐[(2‐Hydroxytetradecyl)oxy]phenyl‐phenyliodoniumhexafluoroantimonate, camphorquinone and ethyl 4‐dimethylaminobenzoate were used as a photoinitiator system. The polymerization process was induced by light and monitored using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. A novel combination‐initiation polymerization process was proposed: first, cationic copolymerization of BFDGE and pTHF‐250 was initiated by the photoinitiator system and heat was released by this polymerization; then, copolymerization of BFDGE and DCSBL was induced by that heat while pTHF‐250 served as an anionic initiator.
